Credit Sudhaar contributes to Digital India by Digitalising a Village!
Credit Sudhaar, India’s premier credit health management company notches another activity aimed at improving the education in the country’s rural areas, a requirement that is important to growth for any community. The company contributed to Digital India campaign by digitalising a Village named Pimpri in Maharastra.
In today’s times, it is accepted that technology is the way to go, and has become an integral part of life for every individual. The knowledge of basic computer management and the Internet can go a long way in improving productivity in every field. On an individual level, it provides opportunities for people, especially the youth, to embrace technology and thereby provide better employment opportunities.
While there is absolutely no doubt that the Government of India has taken bold and effective steps to digitise schools, the process is not always able, whether in part or entirety, to reach all schools owing to various socio-political factors including but not limited to the small size of student population, extreme rural presence, non-aligned or independent village head candidates etc.
Credit Sudhaar identified one such village Pimpri, located in Yavatmal district of Maharashtra; to introduce their campaign of digitising rural schools. The population of this village does not exceed 500 individuals, and a significant chunk of the population over 15 percent comprises of children between the ages of 0 to 6 years.
This makes connectivity to schools in villages such as Pimpri even more significant, wherein future generations are being nurtured. Another factor in zeroing on Pimpri village is the fact that it rightly boasts of a higher literacy rate compared to the rest of Maharashtra, as per the data provided by the Census 2011.
As part of the initiative, the Credit Sudhaar team visited Pimpri village along with the required peripheral. Computers, printer, projector were installed and run in presence of the village sarpanch, village head, the school management committee (comprising of school parents) teachers and student on 11 May 2016.
With this initiative, the teachers were confident to make a vast change in the teaching methodologies that would help students learn better and also learn to manage computers at an earlier age.
With wholehearted and active participation from Team Credit Sudhaar, this CSR initiative was successfully implemented.
TechBuzzIn wishes Credit Sudhaar all the best & kudos to your great work! Keep it up!
